As a regular of the fox I suggested a big family meal. We waited for a while for our table as another party were taking a while to leave and had made a bit of a mess. When we were seated we waited for our meals that took a while to arrive but we know from previous visits that all... More

My friend and I visited the fox bistro on Friday 7th Nov. we had the picnic bench afternoon lunch with a very lovely glass of prosecco. As soon as we got there, the staff were very efficient and got us our drunks straight away. We were seated by a very friendly waitress. When the food came it was just fantastic,... More

We are local to the area and had frequented this restaurant on many occasions prior to this incident, but haven't been back since. The particular evening in question, the restaurant was quite busy, but seemed to be filled with incompetent inexperienced serving staff. We were having a family evening treat at the end of a long week, and almost immediately... More

Went to the fox bar and bistro yesterday (26/10/14) and have to say it was scummy. We were greeted by the polite staff and shown to our table. As we had booked, the waitress knew what we had wanted ordered, which was the picnic table afternoon tea. So this made it quick to be served. Happy with what we got... More

We visited The Fox for our daughter's 21st and weren't disappointed. The food was exceptionally good and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. We took cupcakes for the end of the meal and the staff took the time to present them beautifully to bring them to the table. A thoroughly enjoyable experience and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this... More

The food was fantastic as was the atmosphere. However, for what we paid, it would have been good to have some vegetables, rather than have to pay extra. The service was great and the waitress made some good choices for me when I couldn't decide what to eat. The menu was extensive and when they found out that they didn't... More

Called in for Sunday lunch. Really nice traditional food cooked to perfection. Wide range of well presented beers. Staff also very good with timely service. Afternoon tea was being served as we left which looked worth consideration another time. Recommended

Wide variety of seafood options and a good selection for those of us who prefer land loving proteins. Good devices and atmosphere and a very good looking take on afternoon tea that I'll be taking my children to try very soon. Reasonably priced and well worth a visit!
